Wine Geek Recommended
Meet the CoolVines Wine Geek! He’ll guide you toward – or away from! – wines that have a unique flavor profile: intentionally oxidized wines, earthy, stinky wines, wines with a bit of fritz on the tongue. Look for him throughout our web site, and on the shelves in our stores, to point the way toward these geeky wines.
Bierzo is a small wine region in the Northwestern "shoulder" of Spain, not far across the national border from Portugal's Tras-os-Montes, north of the Douro.The political region in which the Bierzo DO lies is called El Bierzo, part of the province of Castilly y Leon Bierzo's climate is unique among Castilla y Leon DOs. The Bierzo is located in a valley that is sheltered by surrounding mountains from the effects of Castilla y Leon's continental climate, particularly fall frosts. Temperatures range from winter lows of 30Â° Fahrenheit to summer highs near 90Â°F. Bierzo gets about 28 inches of rain each year. The area was once an ancient lake, and its alluvial soils are rich and varied.
